By the ocean, wonderful musician singing and playing a ukelele. Food was incredible. Great service as well.
Food was good overall, but a couple misses, including poor-quality “prawn” appetizer and over-salted gnocchi. Drinks were excellent, as were the ube dinner rolls. Service, however, was lacking for this level of restaurant. Our server seemed to be constantly running behind. Bread and butter was promised, but not delivered until after appetizers arrived and after we asked the busser/back waiter to grab some for us. Also, no special consideration was made for our anniversary celebration. Everything was pretty good, but we had a better time at Merriman’s in Waimea, at a similar price point.
Very nice dinner and the ambiance was nice. Three of us had steak and it was over cooked and on the dry side. The fish was delicious.
Our last night on the Big Island was spent at Brown’s and we had a lovely time. Our food was delicious, the service was top notch and the entertainment was lovely.
Perfect Hawaiian dining experience.
Excellent food and service.
Beautiful outdoor setting, hear the waves and the local music. A great place to dress up, fabulous, first class, service. Highly recommended
Lovely meal with live music
We just went for a special night out while we were vacationing nearby. Everyone was extremely polite and attentive to our needs while we were there. Food was delicious - didn’t leave a morsel behind. Linda was a delightful server and offered great suggestions. If only we had reserved for an earlier time to see the entire sunset…
A wonderful experience. Everything was top notch - service, ambience, food quality - we'll be back for sure!
Breathtakingly beautiful setting! Food was delicious, service was fantastic! Perfect evening!
Exceptional location at the fairmont orchid, with sunset views and live music. The servers were extremely attentive including to our 5 year old. The ube bread rolls were delicious! The duck and fish were perfect. Dessert was irresistible. People in our party were divided on whether Browns or CanoeHouse (keiki menu with teriyaki chicken) was better. They’re both amazing and same price point/views. Definitely worth the splurge. Parking was free.
Our server so fast we could hardly understand her. My wife’s starter came out first; my appetizer came out 15 minutes later. The filet was over salted and overpriced at $56.
The experience was phenomenal.
Great foods and service,
Fine dining in a romantic setting under the stars and near the ocean. Innovative dishes of fresh local fare a good wine list and excellent servers. A bit of a walk from the hotel and not for non resident nor diners without transport after 9.30.
Rare cabs or service and a minimum charge of $50. Alas . A perfect evening tarnished by local conditions. Be warned.
Celebrated our last evening on the big Island and our anniversary here. Great 3 course meal option, service was fantastic, great live music (not overpowering but set the tone) and gorgeous location!
Summer provided friendly, quality service.
Sunset was spectacular as were the Kompachi and Kona Mud Pie.
Look forward to the next visit
Wonderful service, nice special touch on the birthday girls dessert. Always a wonderful experience.
Surf and turf was delicious paired with a sweet desert wine.
Amazing food. Amazing views and live music. The service was phenomenal, hats off to the great staff at Brown’s. Our party had the ahi tuna, duck breast and prime ribeye - can’t say how wonderful it all was. Would recommend to anyone visiting the big island!
The entire experience was AMAZING!!! Food/drinks, staff (especially our waiter;) music and the sunset view… all simply PERFECT!!!
Perfect place to dine outside while watching an amazing sunset. Cocktails were good and dinner was excellent!
It is impossible to over-rate this restaurant. The setting, the service and the food has been the best experience we’ve had on the Big Island. My only regret is that this won’t be our last reservation during our stay. Any other restaurant will be a step down from the high bar set by Brown’s.
Our server Christian was superb. His professionalism, courtesy and attention provides the ultimate customer experience. Christian represents the best qualities within the hospitality and foodservice career paths.
If you are staying on the western side of the island do yourself a favor and book a dinner reservation at Brown’s.
The view is amazing. Our waitress was wonderful. The appetizers were better than the main courses. It's worth the experience for the amazing view.
Fantastic experience, serives was excellent and the setting is the best on the island. We will be back.
Awesome everything. Best food and service we’ve had on the trip. Can’t wait to go again.
Outstanding. All details considered, and done very well. Property is gorgeous and well maintained. Light live music, perfect setting, excellent service and food. Can’t ask for anything more.
It was my 47th birthday and Brown’s Beach House was excellent. We showed up early to our 8pm reservation to look around the property. They seated us early and at the best table there. Started with the poke and Maui onion soup. Our entrees were the Mahi-mahi and filet. Everything was beyond our expectations and cooked to perfection. This is our first time to the big island and definitely will go back to Brown’s. Thank you for making my birthday special!
Best dining and service on the Big Island!
The service is top notch plus cloth tablecloth’s and napkins. The ambiance very romantic yet professional with outdoor seating, small table lamps, the sight and sound of the ocean and a guitarist for background music (not too loud - not to soft). Fun crafted cocktails too. Let’s talk food tho - the prawns delicious, strawberry and goat cheese salad tasty and the steak - melt in your mouth! It’s all about that steak! Not a morsel left. In addition, a beautiful dessert with “Happy Anniversary” elegantly scrolled in chocolate around the edge. It’s the small touches that elevate a meal. Good job Browns Beach House! YUM!
Always enjoy Brown’s. We look forward to coming every time we visit. Perfect setting, wonderful food, attentive and talented staff.
The setting is outstanding. Our server was excellent. Food was OK.
The ambiance and service were the best about this restaurant. We sat outside with a direct unobstructed view of the beach and beautiful sunset.
Excellent food and exceptional service. Absolutely a first class experience!
The absolute best dining experience my husband and I have had anywhere in the world in our 50 plus years together. The beauty of the sunset beyond the beach, the feel of the gentle sea breezes, the sound of the musician with his soft guitar and ukulele melodies, the exquisitely prepared dishes, the conscientious and caring servers - all of this in a most beautiful setting.
It was a wonderful dinner! I definitely recommend!
Just incredible. Great food, service, music, cocktails and a spectacular setting.
